In the last decade, venture capital has looked to Asia, India and Europe for investment opportunities. Today there are many factors that point to a refocusing of venture capital investments back to the US. The recent robust US IPO markets, the improved regulatory environment for public offerings in the US, and the lowering of institutional investor allocations for LP investments in venture capital funds may be some of the reasons for this paradigm shift. Our panel will discuss their global vs. local perspectives and will share their experience in launching companies in the US, Europe, Israel, Russia and Asia. Our panel will then be joined by entrepreneurs to discuss successes, challenges and pitfalls in launching companies in the technology Sector. We look forward to the pleasure of your company. Panelists
